The footbridge path pops out on Bantry Bay Rd not far beyond the Anglican Church. There is a short ride down Bantry Bay Rd of about 200m (50m beyond the intersection of Garner Ave) before the Pipeline surfaces in a nature strip on the western side of Bantry Bay Rd.
The first section is fully grassed and has a slight decline leading to Rangers Retreat Rd where the pipeline goes underground again. Cross the road and head as if you were going down Ima Place but turn through the gate on the right where the pipeline resurfaces.
The next stretch is a descent down to the Sydney Water Building. It's a sealed road, which is a shame because it would have been a fun off-road section. Ride right up to the building and then take the narrow grassy route around the northern (right hand side) of the building.
The section from the building to Warringah Rd is grassed with some small sections of dirt. At the time of riding it was pretty smooth right up to the gate.
Parking on Bantry Bay Rd, Rangers Retreat Rd or Fitzpatrick Ave East.
